From the new terms of service:

"By submitting your stuff to the Services, you grant us (and those we work with to provide the Services) worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free, sublicenseable rights to use, copy, distribute, prepare derivative works (such as translations or format conversions) of, perform, or publicly display that stuff to the extent we think it necessary for the Service."

Apparently Dropbox has just joined the Dark Side. Time to find an alternative.

Ubuntu one is a good alternative, if youre on ubuntu, android and windows

Well, nearly everybody uses Facebook. What does that say about us?

"You retain ownership to your stuff. You are also solely responsible for your conduct, the content of your files and folders, and your communications with others while using the Services.

We sometimes need your permission to do what you ask us to do with your stuff (for example, hosting, making public, or sharing your files). By submitting your stuff to the Services, you grant us (and those we work with to provide the Services) worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free, sublicenseable rights to use, copy, distribute, prepare derivative works (such as translations or format conversions) of, perform, or publicly display that stuff to the extent reasonably necessary for the Service. This license is solely to enable us to technically administer, display, and operate the Services. You must ensure you have the rights you need to grant us that permission. "

Dropbox works for me: easy, clear, reliable. And competitively priced.

Drop box is a great service but the space should be increased for free accounts.

about Dropbox and vBoxxCloud · Aug 2014 · Helpful Not helpful

I used to use Dropbox. It's an awesome stable tool but got something new from work that does the same but is better for work. I think it's called vboxx-cloud but it's branded to our company name.
Not sure if vboxx-cloud is on alternativeTo but it's a great bussiness product.

Yes I found the name in the mention box below and its called: vboxxcloud.

Tnx!

I love Dropbox, but expanding is too costly.

I really, really love Dropbox for what it is. Having a single folder that syncs with my computer, laptop, my friend's computer and my phone is a convenience I cannot live without any more. But the $10 monthly fee to increase its size is a bit much for me at the moment. Dropbox initially gives you 3GB for free.

Google Drive has a much more realistic free size for desktop use. 3GB, as much as it may have been ten years ago, is nothing today. I'm not in love with Google Drive's app for phones, but you can't deny that 15GB free storage.

I use both, because why not, right?

Alternative to Dropbox?

Comment by danmorrow
about Dropbox and 4Shared · Jul 2011 · Helpful Not helpful

I am currently looking for alternatives to Dropbox. I have had Dropbox since BETA and love them, but it' always good to look for alternatives. Anyways, I signed up and logged in and right off the bat I was disappointed to see how ugly the UI was. Dropbox leads the field, IMO, in UI design and usability. I have tried about 6 other major players so far and none of them compare in that regard. Unfortunately for me, design matters and so it looks like I will keep searching. As for the other features, the hook is the relatively large amount of space for a low price. It seems that more and more of these kinds of apps are coming out: low price but with questionable usability and feature sets.

Oh well.

btw, the "hover" function under "post type" is not working for me (using Chrome) so I don't know if this should be a comment or review. Sorry.

I think it's sort of a question with an explanation why you not like it :)

I heard lot's of good things about Live Mesh.

Could you try Zukmo (zukmo.com), a cloud based tool to manage online information feed. Which is used to Sync files, Store, Share, Collaborate files and bookmark online content with full content search. Currently having a basic set of sync features and they working on additional feature sets..(http://www.zukmo.com/features.html )

You should try FileGator (http://file-gator.com ) and host your own dropbox app

Dropbox is a very neat application, but on my W7 it's very unreliable - it tells me everything's been backed up, but the files just aren't online. To fix it, I need to restart the client so that it moves the files online. Sometimes it "misses" up to a hundred files.
